How hard is it to win your state amateur championship? Extremely hard. How about winning two in a row? My friend Rachel Newren did. Rachel is no longer an amateur though. She’s turned pro and will be going on the Futures Tour this year. I’ve had the pleasure of playing golf with Rachel a few times. She plays against all the men in our club, from the same tees, and beats them all.
Just last week, she bombed a drive 20 yards past me on the 468 yard par four 2nd hole. I hit first, a hell of a shot which ended up about 10 feet. Rachel then stiffed one to about three feet. The swing that hit the stiff shot is in the YouTube video below. I made par after two-putting. Rachel? Birdie.
Keep your eye on Rachel in the future and wish her luck!
